Translation Fieldwork (TRNS6910)


In this unit students in the Master of Translation Studies will be required to complete 75 hours of fieldwork by working on a translation commission. Students will liaise directly with the commissioning clients to determine the timeline for completion, presentation of the end product and any market-specific constraints that might introduce substantive differences between original and translation. Successful completion of the unit will be determined not only by the quality of translation product, but also satisfaction of client guidelines.
